Red Emma's is a radical worker cooperative that has been operating in Baltimore since 2004. Their mission (from their website https://www.redemmas.org/about): “first, to demonstrate, concretely, that it’s possible to build institutions that directly put values like sustainability and democracy to work, and second, in doing so, to build a resource for movements for social justice here in Baltimore.” The space includes meeting rooms, a bookstore, and a restaurant.

At this session, collective members will introduce their project and describe how their principles organize their decision-making and work with each other and the broader community. The attendees will then have an opportunity to ask questions and think through what it might look like to enact some of the principles presented in our work, and even specifically at our workplaces, in small group discussion.

We hope this opportunity will allow us to think about what we might accomplish with non-bureaucratic and non-hierarchical organizational models that allow us to relate to each other, our donors, our patrons, and our collections in more egalitarian and flexible ways. These capacities will be important as we respond to climate change.
